Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera ?

The SAF that shows up on the LCD

\015 Sometimes when the SAF shows up (don't know what it is or how to turn it off), the picture won't take. I was out take a picuture of a house to do an analysis on a neighborhood at 6:30 last Saturday morning, and when I got there my picture would not take, I had to keep moving it to different settings, hoping I would not have wasted my trip.\015\012\015\012I cant find my manual fast enough and dont' know what this means,.\015\012\015\012Thanks\015

My Sony A700 works ok in the P,A,S and M modes. However when set in Auto mode the lcd shows Portrait. When in Portrait it shows Portrait. When in Landscape the lcd shows Portrait. When in Macro it shows Manual.When in Sports action it show Manual. In Sunset it shows Nightime. It also shows Nightime in both the Nightime and Memory Recall modes. The +/- button calls up the ISO screen instead of the ev screen. What's the solution?


Has it been serviced before? I remember one A200 with a very similar problem. There was a flex cable broken inside - the owner had given it to another technician before me and he managed to brake it. I think it could be a bad connection or some liqui ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A700

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it fixable? I bought the Canon PowerShot A570 IS. I don't know if it is me or the camera but my LCD screen doesn't stay on. I can take a phote, the photo will then display on the LCD for 2 seconds BUT then the LCD goes blank, all i can see are the menu options. If I take a pic while LCD is blank my pic's


The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

A85 camera LCD shows up with pink and black lines every time a picture is taken. LCD screen displays the camera icons on LCD screen but will not take anymore photo's. Lens used to view picture status prior to photo shot but now, it consistently shows up in black. When a picture is shot, the screen then turns pink and black on the LCD screen.


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off. Thanks, Steve

Nikon CoolPix S500 shows colored lines on lcd and in photos where the lights are bright. I have restored settings tried using it with no flash, soft flash, and auto flash and the problem continues.
